UnitingCare Pancake Day
UnitingCare Pancake Day is about having a great day of fun with friends while supporting local people in need. Throughout February and March hundreds of groups across Victoria and Tasmania host events to raise money to support people in need.
Funds raised at UnitingCare Pancake Day events help UnitingCare Ballarat provide practical support to disadvantaged people in our community, including the homeless, abused and vulnerable children and adults, the frail and aged, families in crisis and those with disabilities.
Our annual Pancake Flipping Relay Race will be running once more between 10.30am - 11.30am Tuesday 28 February. Come on down to Lydiard Street South and enjoy the fun and delicious pancakes or better yet enter your workplace in the race!
Contact us on 5332 1286 for more info.
Hold an Event
You can show your support and get involved in the fun of Pancake Day by:
Registering your event
The first thing you need to do is register your event. It’s easy, a host pack will then be sent to you with all the information and materials you need to host your Pancake Day event.
Receive a host pack
You will receive a host pack in the mail shortly after you register your event. Within the host pack you will find all the information you need and lots of promotional material. If you need more, you can download more resources online.
Set a date and a location
The official date of Pancake Day is Tuesday 9th February, but don’t worry, you can host your event anytime in February.
Have a good think about what date and location would suit the type of event you would like to hold, and check to see it suits all those involved. Send out a ‘save the date’ invite to friends, family or colleagues so they are informed of the event.
Plan your event
There are lots of ways you could host your Pancake Day event, from a pancake cook up, to a pancake flipping competition. There’s no right or wrong way of hosting, it’s just about being creative, and doing what best suits you. Check out some Pancake Day event ideas.

Thanks! Don’t forget to forward your funds.
